I happened to chance upon this really cute recipe and I thought I'll try it with my daughter since Easter is just around the corner.
Honestly, I find it harder than it looks and a lot messier. My daughter gave up doing it half way doing it and left me to finish it. I only did 5 eggs and use the rest to do something easier and less messy. :P
I didn't have plastic egg that is required for this so I use Kinder Surprise Egg instead. It works fine too. Take note that the mixture will hardens when it's cooled, so you got to work fast!
If you want to do this over the weekend, here's the recipe, which I've copied over for easy reference.
- 3 tablespoons Butter or margarine
- 10 oz (about 40) Regular Marshmallows
- 1 box (130g) Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal
- M&M's® Chocolate Candies, Chocolate Bits, etc for decorations
How to do it:
- Clean, then coat inside of plastic eggs with cooking spray or just spread regular cooking oil on it. Set aside.
- In large saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted.
- Remove from heat.
- Add Kellogg's® Rice Krispies® cereal. Stir until well coated.
- Using greased hands, firmly press some Rice Krispies® mixture into both halves of each plastic egg.
- Use fingers to make hollow center in each half. Remove from molds. Place on wax paper. Cool slightly.
- Place about 6 M&M'S® in one half of each egg. Gently press two halves of each egg together until they stick. Cool completely.
- Decorate if desired. Best if served the same day.
